Description of module content:

Introductory lectures and individual tutorials will help you identify an appropriate subject for your case study as well as develop your research and communication skills. Your case study can take the form of a written report or an audio-visual piece.
Through a short series of lectures and seminars you will develop your CV writing, presentation skills, professional attitudes and working practices. You will research the background of potential work placement opportunities and will be given guidance on finding appropriate placements. Together with the module tutors, you will identify clear learning outcomes.
Upon completion of your work related learning, you will write a reflective report that will evaluate your experience; assess your personal development and the industry knowledge that you have gained; and analyse the transferable, creative and/or technical skills that you have learned.
The Critical Reflective Report will be written for assessment purposes and will be informed by your reflective journal. This will be accompanied by a portfolio that will include an up to date CV reflecting your work related learning experiences, any creative work produced as part of the learning experience and all other relevant documentation such as copies of cover letters, publications or web content.
